FLINT, MI (WNEM) -A nurse is suing Hurley Medical Center over allegations of discrimination
A lawsuit filed against Hurley claims she found a note in a patient's file stating, "No African American nurse to take care of baby."
According to court documents, the nurse was caring for a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when the baby's father asked to speak with a supervisor. The lawsuit states he told the nurse in charge that he didn't want any African Americans taking care of his baby, then he pulled up a sleeve showing a tattoo believed to be a Swastika.
The lawsuit states the baby was re-assigned to another nurse.
I'm a Black nurse in a very white state. During my tour of Nursing Home Hell, one resident added a note to his chart saying "Caucasian caregivers only." Oddly enough, he didn't mind when he had a Filipina nurse. They way I saw it, he was old, he wasn't going to change, and I wasn't going to make his bigotry my problem. If he didn't want me to take care of him, that was fine with me.
